The photo had this title:
You-can-pretend-it-s-an-actual-photo-all-you-want-But-when-PC-users-say-consoles-are-holding-graphics-back-they-mean-it

I thought it was a photo too at first, but when I look closely at it I find small things that just seem a little off.

If it's rendered they are probably using real photos as textures, just so you know.

What do you guys think, real photo or graphically rendered?

Defenitly a graphic render. There's a few thing that point in that direction but the most obvious is that it's a based on a GTA location. And GTA is always based in fictionals cities. Well, I think it's GTA. Could someone confirm it?
Thanks to TinyStar for making me this awesome sig

there is a huge difference between a render that has to be avaiable within 1/24 of a second, and a render with maximum definition where you have 5h to do it.

I do realize that, but I also believe it would be a bit too invalid a comparison to make. And as such I think the render is done in real time, just possibly with some poor framerates.

Looking closely at it, the only thing that stands out in my opinion is the incredible quality of the textures. There's not much of a requirement for geometrical detail, and where it is (the cab for example) it might even be tessellated.

i'm very skeptical about that image. Gta is a game that loads all at once. it has a rather large environment and it has to be constanlty avaiable, within the player's vicinity.

the upper photo would take time to make, from the experience i have with 3d modelling (but that was a "couple" of years ago, Pentium4)

it may be hard to reach a consensus about these two images, and i really would like to get a bit more information about the upper one, but i think it's an unfair comparison.

Well yeah,....


I do see what they tried to point out here, but comparing an ingame screenshot with a single totally overrendered pic that wouldn't be able to run smootly as ingame graphics on any rig....?
Not rly reasonable...

The top is clearly a render. There are many flaws within the rendering that, when looked at, completely take away from the overall image. It's very well rendered to the point that it can fool people into believing that it's a photo from life, however, there are some glaring faults within the image that distract one from the illusion when they're discovered.


For starters, take a look at the newspaper on the street to the right side of the taxi. Once you look at that, more things should become apparent to you.



In all honesty, I still prefer pc gaming vs console gaming with exception to the Wii U.
